Please try again later. Robin Laws is one of my favorite writers and I think he proves his mettle with this book. Not only the best treatise I’ve read on the Nine Hells, but I think the best supplement I’ve read for 3. Book depicts the Nine Hells in the way I’ve always thought it should be which is accessible to players and not just high level characters with both politics and room for some hack ‘n slash. Great buy to apply to your campaign regardless of which edition you’re using.

The second Fiendish Codex follows in the footsteps of the first. Like Hordes of the Abyss, this work focuses on one of the great fiendish races – the devils.
The book follows the familiar formmat. An introductory chapter, followed by in-depth material in this case, the geography and politics of the Hells. Then new character options, including Devil-touched feats and a new race, the Hellbred, new spells, and prestige classes. Then a chapter with monsters, and finally some details and aspects for the Lords of the Nine. The content is solid, and definitely makes this reviewer ready to run hellish adventures.
Sections on devilish cults as well as feats customized to focus on a particular Lord of the Nine whom do you serve? The revisionism is kept to a minimum, mostly focused on Malbolge. The sixth layer of hell, originally something of a poor stepchild among the layers, gets literally remade from the ground up. Its former ruler, the Hag Countess, is replaced by Glasya, daughter of Asmodeus, who has been a fan-favorite ever since she appeared in the original Monster Manual II.
The Hag Countess’ fate is a fascinating one, so I won’t spoil it. The rest of the Hells are kept mostly unchanged. Even some of the original dukes of Hell mentioned back in the Dragon issues are given a mention.
Players of the classic Hells won’t feel like the infernal pit has changed underneath them. There are also a few classic side references – another variant illustration of the Paladin in Hell, for instance.
Kudos to WotC for remembering their long-standing fans. Sadly, the book misses on a few things.
Fiendish Codex II – D&D Wiki
The difference between Baatezu and the rest of codx hellish residents is never explained, missing a great opportunity for political power games. The monsters have quite a few repeats – abishai and some of the devils from earlier books get an update. Others are simply not particularly original fiencish.
Some of the artwork is severely lacking too. Code shadowy illustrations are good for atmosphere, they should not be used for illustrating what a monster looks like – Assassin Devil, Malebranche and Orthon for instance. Others are simply wrong – the Kalabon illustration bears no resemblance to its description, while the Pleasure Devil looks like left-over artwork from the Shadow Magic section of the Tome of Magic. Overall, the book is a good one.
I look forward to any future books in the series, whether another Fiendish Codex for the yugoloths, or a Celestial Codex about the Heavens. Well, I have to congratulate Wizards for adding another great book to the list of accessories. Our group runs several high level to epic level campaigns and this is a must for anyone who wants to involve the Blood War and the politics and intrigue covex hell to your campaign.
The new stats for the all the major players are here along with prominent followers and factions for each lord.
There are many new feats and skills specific to just these planes as well as a few new presige classes that you can use for PC’s and NPC’s. The other great things is the plethora of roleplaying ideas for each of the nine hells, including cities, landmarks and many maps to really help you flush out your campaign.
Things like this and other information make it a must for your collection so that when your party meets Mephistopheles, its an experience that they will never forget!
This book is awesome! I like it because it gives more options for how to play a devil as a DM. Plus it gives some ideas for whole campaigns to be run. I have found this book to very helpful for my GM style.
I use alot of different sources and mass them into my playing. My players never know what to expect!! See all 23 reviews.
